    Pretty frustrated as I can't find anything in the context of a step by step guide to installing miniDLNA. I already installed transmission and made the jail and software folders in my NAS (jail has its own IP address as well).

    I went to the freenas sight and downloaded the latest version of miniDLNA but its zipped with numerous files and not a PBI file.

    Hoping someone could thoroughly explain to me how to get this installed while keeping in mind I've only worked on Windows platforms previously.

    I have freenas 8.2 x64.

    Thank you pfonseca and HAL 9000!! The issue was that I wasn't looking in the correct location of the freenas website to find the PBI file. It installed with a breeze and its appear under Network in Windows.

    HAL, you mentioned I cannot fully configure mindlna in the GUI. What's a good reference I could find to see what those other configurations are?

    Thank you both!!

    You can't specify separate paths for audio, music and videos for example.
    Take a look at oryginal minidlna.conf file for more settings.

    What exactly is it that you're doing here? Will typing those commands in that box make it work? or does something else have to be configured? ..Yes, I'm newbie!
